First things first: I need to mention I received this book from Goodreads giveaways.

Jolie Gentil’s parents need to work on their marriage - in their words, so they leave her with her great aunt without letting her know about this in advance; nice parenting, that. While she is angry at them, she has no choice but to go to a local school for a year. The local pupils are not exactly the most welcoming bunch, but she befriended a guy called Scoobie who is somewhat a loner. The rest of the book

This is the prequel book to all the Jolie Gentil mystery books that Elaine Orr has written. All wonderful books, but as a series they must be read in order as they build off one another. This book takes us to the beginning of their friendship, how they met, and how they became such good friends. We are talking Jolie's junior year of high school when she had to live with her Aunt Madge (who we all know and love from the series) while her parents repaired their marriage.

This was such a fun little read! This is the first book I’ve read in the Jolie Gentil cozy mystery series, and I really really enjoyed it. It’s definitely made me want to read the rest of the series and I’m so glad I have them!

Jolie is a lovely character, I know this is the prequel to the series where we get a background on her and her high school antics. She was written brilliantly with the right kinda teenage attitude and mischievousness, along with her lack of concern revolving around her
